My Salvation Story...
I am Chika Nwaogu. I was born on May 20, 1990. I am a Nigerian contemporary Christian singer-songwriter and recording artist from Ezinihitte Mbaise, Imo State. I am also the founder and owner of the record label Amen Records, which is home to recording artists such as myself, Sir Steve, Queen Ebere among others.
I was born into a family of six in Lagos state, Nigeria. I have three siblings. I began singing at the age of eight. I learned to play the piano with the help of my uncle when I was quite young. In my mid-twenties, I found Christ and became a born-again Christian.
My parents are both based in the United States. I am a graduate of Physics Science from the University of Lagos. Prior to my gospel music breakthrough, I was a professional computer programmer. I am a member of Christ Embassy Church in Nigeria.
Growing up, I was quite fascinated with science and wanted to become a scientist, which I eventually became. I always excelled at Physics in High School, so it was only logical I studied it at the University.
I grew up in Aguda, Surulere in my earlier life and later lived most of my teenage life in Festac Town. (Both in Lagos) I attended Princeton Junior School, Handmaid International Catholic School (both at Aguda, Surulere) and Nazareth School (at Festac Town) for my primary education. I attended Nigerian Navy Secondary School for my secondary education and then the University of Lagos for my university education.
I was such a nerd growing up and was very fascinated with computers. I taught myself computer programming and was proficient in over 10 programming language before I was 20.
I found God later in my life, precisely in my mid-twenties. I made a lot of money and was living alone before I turned 24. At a point in my life, things became difficult and I started to lose everything. Everything! But God came to my rescue. He changed me. Entirely! He made a way when I thought it was over. He lifted me up and I decided from that day that I was going to live the rest of my life for him. And that is exactly what I intend on doing.
It has been great. Absolutely great! I didn't get to where I am by my power, but by his mercies. He has promoted me to the world and has given me this talent; which I intend to use to save souls for God.
He has been the only thing constant in my life and I leave you with these words…
Just believe. He is able, more than ABLE. There is nothing too BIG for God. Absolutely nothing! Don't throw in the towel yet. Don't give up yet, because your day of VICTORY is coming.
Thank you Kay Magnate for this opportunity, may God bless you greatly and increase your ministry.
